La Casa Latina Gift Fund
Assoc. of Latino Alumni & La Casa Latina Celebrate 20 Years

For the past 20 years, the Association for Latino Alumni (ALA) and the Center for Hispanic Excellence: La Casa Latina (La Casa Latina) have been sources of belonging and support for the Latinx community at the University of Pennsylvania. Since their founding in 1999, La Casa Latina and ALA have been devoted to providing advocacy, programming, and support to every student that has needed it.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of two incredible institutions that have given so much to our success and visibility as a community. In honor of this milestone, we, as alumni, are coming together to support the next generation of Latinx leaders. Gifts will go towards La Casa Latina's gift fund, supporting contemporary programming such as the Familias Mentorship Program which brings together alumni, graduate students, and undergraduate students to create a community of growth and development.
Our goal is to raise $20,000, to symbolize each year that ALA and La Casa Latina have been a part of the Penn community. Every donation counts, whether that's $20 or $200. Your gift is a symbol of your commitment to ensuring the success of Latinx students at Penn.

Donors who give at the following levels will be recognized prominently in La Casa Latina, the cultural hub for Penn's Latinx community.

Giving Levels:
Estrella $200-$499
Luna $500-$1,999
Sol $2000+

Thank you very much for your support!

    Places like La Casa made Penn the experience that it was for people like me. Thank you Johnny & Martiza for being my family away from home. I love the fact that the torch is being carried forward by our very own Kareli! Con mucho cariño, Pedro --Pedro Reyes

    I am so incredibly thankful to have had La Casa Latina as a resource, and more importantly a home away from home, at Penn. Even from before day one on campus my family and I knew that Johnny and Maritza would always be there for me. Gracias por apoyarme en todo aún ahora años despúes de graduarme. Congratulations and cheers to the next 20 years and beyond! Los quiero mucho! --Tania Chairez
